US Undercover Operations From England in World War TwoeBook - 2016
The U.S. Army Air Force (USAAF), American Office of Strategic Services (OSS), and British Special Operations Executive (SOE) jointly played a crucial part in operations behind enemy lines in occupied Europe during World War II. Milton Ernest Hall, a country house in Bedfordshire and official UK headquarters of the U.S. Army Airforce Service Command, was located at the heart of a network of top secret Allied Radio and propaganda transmitting stations, political warfare units, and undercover American and British formations dealing in espionage and subterfuge. Martin Bowman draws upon revealing first-hand accounts and official documentary evidence to provide tantalizing glimpses of the cloak and dagger operations. The author's extensive research has revealed that Allied Secret Service organizations participated in even more unorthodox activities, such as clandestine propaganda and political warfare. He also reveals the truth behind what really happened to legendary band leader Glenn Miller.
